Not sure if the painting is as dark as it looks on my monitor...
but I would do some highlighting and brighter layers.
You might look at some Jerry Yarnell you tube videos, to get some more ideas on how to do that.
For next time -
avoid placing a major item in the center of the scene.
the far trees could be more of a soft blue green color
the closer trees are too much the same shape/same brush stokes .

The rocks & water lines look very nice..

The beauty of Acrylics is you can put color right over the top of something..
maybe next time give a more interesting shape to the mountain...

the foreground is nicely done...rocks, water, hillside. But the mountain is the same color as the sky and that gets boring fast. And the shape of the mountain could be a lot more interesting. That scooped out shape is disturbing and points up to dead center, you could pull it over this way, or the other way or even lose it and make a pretty sky. Just some ideas.

nice drawing on trees. next time very them a little more for interest. this painting would jump out more if you just lightened the sky a bit towards the horizon I believe. maybe a white glaze?
